CAT COMES TO PMB (article first published : 2000-03-19)

Gwendolen Hardwick, high school programme director of the Creative Arts Team (CAT), returns to Pietermaritzburg next week to fulfil the last phase of a USIS- funded collaborative project between CAT and the Drama Studies department of the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg. She will be accompanied by Linda Carole Pierce and Keith Johnston, both senior members of CAT. The team will be working alongside theatre educators and students at the university and meeting local practitioners as well as the newly formed Y2Kids Youth Theatre Company.

The team will present a public lecture on CAT's work in schools, where they apply theatrical tools to problems like literacy, substance abuse, school violence and reproductive health. The lecture will explain CATís approach to curricular and co-curricular work with children as young as four years old to parents of troubled teenagers. They will also show slides of theatrical interaction in classrooms. The lecture takes place in the Fine Arts Lecture Theatre on the campus on March 27 at 12h15. All are welcome and admission is free.

Drama Studies will be hosting a workshop for people currently using theatre as an educative medium, run by the Creative Arts Team on March 30. Places for this workshop are severely limited and anyone interested in attending should call Wendy Engelbrecht on (033) 394-6393/4 to book.
